Brotherhood


You call me your friend, yet you befriend me not;
You say I am like you, but you don't treat me like one;
We didn't come through the same womb, but we share many a things
In between us, we are not very different
Our origin and start are one and the same;
Still you treat me different;
The blood in ours, though similar in color
Are world apart when it reaches our heads;
When a word reaches us, it assumes not the same meaning;
You look upon it with your biased eye;
Not listening to your origins, not heeding to your thoughts.
You act in haste and make me the culprit.
Weren't we the same? Supporting each other?
How easily you forget the days of past;
The space between us suddenly grows.
The world of ours becomes polluted and corrupt;
But you choose not to bother.
I plead my innocence,
Asking you to lend me your ears;
Though you hear, you act deaf;
Though you see, you seem blind;
All of past matters not to you;
What of our friendship? What of our brotherhood?
Didn't we speak to the wind in euphoric tones?
We did even the kiss the sand with the same prayers!
How easily you forget?
You hurt me, not by your deed
But by your indifference
The love and care, which you showed
You make it seem all cruel
Why break my heart brother
Rather kill me as such
Why this torment?
Need I survive to witness this?
Lo! This world is not pure
Of this I am sure
For if it can't safeguard the purity of two brothers
Nothing more can it do to save the others!

Assalam Alaikum habibi,

I think u r thinking too much.... We all know that Brotherhood is last since the very beginning of the World. Its not today that u find such dispute and indifference but its since Man came into existence. Its that u find it more and developed higher and stronger these days thats it ....
